. but the desperate kitchen sink politics don't end there. mr. romney's pushing the widely debunk claim that president obama is waging a war on welfare. it's the same lame story with his comments about jeep shipping jobs overseas. that's all ugly enough. but then there's this. he's bringing out the king birther, donald trump, to make robo calls and campaign stops in key swing states and the ugliness extends beyond the walls. they have taken to the airwaves with this low piece of political slime. >> obama claimed in a muslim country that america is not a christian nation, said congress had better things to do when it reaffirmed in god we trust. better things than trusting god? like what? >> this is what a desperate campaign looks like. this is what it looked like when a candidate will go to anything that he can to win. no matter how objectionable, no matter how ugly. joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and "the daily beast." thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a su
, ladies and gentlemen. >> mr. romney made changes, too, depending on the weather, but not this president. this week president obama has shown why he is above the man who wants his job and he's made mr. romney seem downright laughable on the issue. >> he promised to be a post partisan president but became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. >> the most partisan president? someone who is dividing the country? what a joke. how about this picture? president obama coming together with a republican governor to tackle the damage from hurricane sandy. need another image, here's another. he's our country leader comforting a jersey resident hit by the storm. need proof of this president being a uniting figure? here's the tape. >> the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> but it wasn't just that kind of leadership that sets president obama apart in this natural disaster. he exposes how wrong the romney ticket is about the role of government. we're better together, not apart, not alone. and today, yet another romne
government and fema. suddenly mr. romney loves fema. doesn't sound like he wants to privatize it today. >> well, of course he's trying to walk that back because this is not the kind of remark that goes over well with voters in the middle that he's trying to lure now. this sounded good for the severely conservative mitt romney to say. but the new moderate mitt doesn't want to be caught -- we have perhaps an unprecedented natural disaster hitting the east coast of the united states. >> right. >> the new moderate mitt doesn't want to be seen saying, oh, the federal government -- why not privatize it? let people pay to be rescued. you know, what is the immoral here, reverend al? the united states is the richest country in the history of the world. bar none. what would be immoral would be for the federal government not to do whatever was necessary, you know, move the 82nd airborne if you have to, to rescue people. make sure they have food and water and make sure as many people as need to be moved to safety are moved to safety. >> richard, ryan's running mate scrapped the budget, tried to el
